Phillies sign lefthander Romero

Posted: June 22, 2007

ST. LOUIS - The Phillies have signed free-agent lefthander J.C. Romero to a minor-league contract.

Romero, 31, will spend the immediate future working out with the rookie-level Gulf Coast League Phillies, but the Phillies hope Romero can help them at the big-league level at some point.

He went 1-0 with a 3.15 earned run average in 23 appearances this season for the Boston Red Sox, but he also allowed 24 hits and 15 walks in 20 innings. He walked more batters than he struck out (11).

The Red Sox released Romero, who had been designated for assignment, on June 19.
